Born and raised in Ohio, Andrew Black is a writer of weird fiction with a Midwestern flair. He has written stories for Short-Story.Me, SNM Horror Magazine, and the anthology Eye Witness Zombie from May December Publications. He maintains a blog of writing tips, rants, weird news and movie and book reviews at maskofreason.wordpress.com.
Influences on his writing come from Jim Butcher, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Lin Carter, Brian Lumley, R.A. Salvatore, and Stephen King. Many of his stories are set in and around a fictionalized version of his rural Ohio hometown, and incorporate local folklore and ghost stories.
Andrew currently resides in Hilliard, Ohio, with his girlfriend, Mandy, and his three fickle muses, house cats named Luna, Precious, and Star.
